White Canary is finally done !
She needs a few small tweaks, but overall I’m very happy with her !
( and proud because vinyl is not fun to sew with haha )
I’d like to promise no more vinyl or corsets but I clearly can’t be trusted, so…

I’ll be debuting White Canary at Fan Expo Vancouver in November with @vigilanteredhood as Captain Cold !
Come say hi and snap a picture if you see us ! ♡♡♡

Shout out to @explodingcrenelation as always for being wonderful and supportive ♡♡♡

And special shout out to @vigilanteredhood for helping tie me into my corset and then helping pull my boots off when I couldn’t bend down ♡♡

One black woman’s powerful case against the subtle sexism of #SayHisName

  • Jordan Edwards is the latest name to be added to a long list of black people who’ve been killed by police. Edwards was only 15. His death sparked familiar outrage and calls to action. 
  • But there’s also been a push by black feminists to call out the use of the hashtag #SayHisName in place of #SayHerName on social media — a hashtag that became popular specifically to call attention to the media erasure of black women who are also victims of police violence.
  • The #SayHerName hashtag went viral in the aftermath of Sandra Bland’s 2015 death in a Texas jail cell. Its meaning was simple:
